My heart and prayers go out to Mrs. Harrison's family. I have worked with her daughter Denise for the last nine years and I have been told that your children are a reflection of the parents. Melva Harrison can only be viewed as a phenomenal woman, simply by the reflection of her daughter Denise. I will keep the Harrison family in my prayers and hope that the memories of Mrs. Harrison are strong enough to replace the grief and sorrow quickly.

I am so sorry for your loss, may you find comfort in the promise that we receive from our loving heavenly father, "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry, nor pain be anymore The former things have passed away" -Rev 21:4
